Highwood Group

A Business South Champion

The Hay Barn, Upper Ashfield Farm, Hoe Lane, Romsey, SO51 9NJ


Highwood is a group of dedicated property experts from across this dynamic industry and, together, we’re proud to sit at the forefront of inspired, sustainable development.

Highwood was founded over 30 years ago as a privately owned company with a commitment to acquire land selectively, build sensitively and sustainably whilst setting benchmarked standards of design and construction.

We’ve delivered an extensive portfolio of distinctive and responsible housing projects that are underpinned by sustainable development. Our founding directors each have their own area of specialist expertise, including land acquisition, planning and the delivery of large-scale sites. All are still actively involved in our day-to-day operations.

From residential estates and inner city regeneration to exclusive developments and luxury care homes, Highwood continues to break new ground in property.

Our operational reach extends across the south coast of England – west to east from Bournemouth to Chichester and north to the M25. Take a look at our current projects and case studies to see how we’ve transformed the areas our developments have taken place in.

We’re proud to have been led by three founding directors who had the vision that has driven everything that Highwood has achieved over the last three decades.

As Chairman, Nigel Meek continues to work alongside the Board and Nigel Shannon and Malcolm Mintram continue to support the management team whenever their wealth of property and development expertise as required. 

Our Expertise

At the heart of our operations is a team of land experts, planners, surveyors, architects, project managers and other property specialists who deliver – every time. Together they create forward-thinking infrastructure schemes and outstanding buildings that meet the discriminating standards of quality and character we’ve consistently attained since we were formed.


Highwood is, at its heart, a partnership business and the relationships we have forged and continue to nurture sit at the heart of the Highwood success story.

Together, we’re delivering award-winning housebuilding projects, high-quality care homes and retirement schemes and some of the most exciting land-led developments to have emerged on the south coast.

It’s our aim to build on this powerful partnership framework and join those who share our vision to execute high calibre land-led propositions that will help to transform the lives of our communities and meet every local need.
